Voices of Tomorrow Proudly Presents:

East African Development Center (EADC). EADC is a preschool program, where we are dedicated to ensuring that every aspect of the program advances racial equity and social justice of all children.Our goal is to create a safe, supportive, and stimulating environment that encourages thesocial/emotional, physical, and mental development of young children through creative play, while nurturing each child’s sense of accomplishment and personal growth. EADC is a bilingual and bicultural preschool program. We strive in cultivating the identity of the African child.This is our opportunity to elevate our children’s native language, prepare them academically for kindergarten, and learn
how to skillfully maneuver through the school systems as bilingual-bicultural, without losing their native language. Our teachers are also bilingual, and hold degrees in ECE. They are dedicated in the growth and development of each child that comes through the doors here at East African Development Center.

GOALS & PHILOSOPHY
Our Philosophy at EADC is to provide an environment where children feel safe, included, and are encouraged to explore materials, as well as their relationships with peers and adults.
We believe that children learn through engagement and thrive emotionally, socially, physically, and cognitively when they are included in their environment. At EADC,
families play key role in our programs. We believe without the partnership of our families, we cannot accomplish our goals. It takes all of us to raise a child.
